As the annual awards season draws to a close – think Oscars, BAFTAs, BRITs, NTAs and Grammys – Horizon Platforms is delighted to announce that it has been awarded its very own Gold-standard accolade in the access industry equivalent of the Oscars.
Horizon scissor lifts play a part in Netto’s return to UK retailing
By Matt Fray, Horizon Account Manager
Horizon scissor lifts are playing a part in Netto’s return to discount retailing in the UK.
Over the past 12 months, more than a dozen electric scissor lifts have been used in the construction and fit out of new Netto stores in Doncaster, Glossop, Sheffield and Ellesmere Port. A further four machines are currently onsite at Leeds and Hull. An initial 15 new outlets will be built around the M62 corridor by the end of the year in a move designed to test how well the discount supermarkets will be received by shoppers in the north of England. If things go to plan, more stores will be opened throughout the UK.

Horizon plays its part in the creation of the Airbus A350
By Vicki Crowe, Account Manager for Horizon Platforms
There is no doubt that the whole is generally greater than the sum of its parts – especially when it comes to the creation of something as awe-inspiring as the Airbus A350 – but I do think it’s important sometimes to pause and reflect on just how many different ‘parts’ – both people and machines – are involved in the creation of the finished product.
Horizon Platforms is just one of hundreds of companies involved in helping Airbus create its latest, greenest and most advanced aircraft – the A350 XWB.
